FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY: The best of… September 2016

Every month i round up my favourite dishes / restaurants i have visited, with hopefully some helpful tips on where to go and what to try in and around Manchester.

Here’s what happened in September.


Indian Tiffin Room
My favourite Indian restaurant in Manchester, i have tried almost all of the menu now, but this visit was all about the dosa! We tried each one, my favourite will always be the classic as the potato masala is heaven, but the guys at the restaurant surprised us with this one from the evening menu… with almonds and pomegranate. Delicious! If you want to know more about Dosa’s take a look at Deanna’s article on Manchester Confidential.

Caffé Grande Piccolino
I have been wanting to go for brunch here since it opened, so one sunny morning Emily and I made sure it happened, with brunch out on the terrace. We ploughed our way through most things, and were very surprised at the prices, making this a cheaper treat than expected without any compromise on the quality.
Our favourite were the eggs benedito and the waffles.

No1 Watson Street
Originally bar snacks / lunch menu, No1 Watson street has now developed its food offering, to still offer casual dining by the bar but also they now offer a full restaurant menu in the back, we couldn’t wait to try it. The scotch eggs and chicken were stand out dishes for us.

Under new management changes are coming for the better for Épernay, recently refurbished with a fresh new look. Now they have updated their menu to offer more classical French food offerings. Including cheese boards with matched wines. We went along to try the new Champagne brunch, a great French alternative to afternoon tea. We highly recommend this.
